Academic excellence

At NAISAK, we inspire every student to achieve more. Whatever your child wants to be or do in life, our combination of British excellence, awe-inspiring experiences, and personalised attention will enable them to create their own future.

Academic excellence

There’s no limit to what your child can achieve at Nord Anglia International School Al Khor. Guided by the world’s best teachers, our students enjoy an outstanding British-international academic education that’s enhanced by our unique location in the flourishing northern communities of Qatar.

To unlock each student’s full potential, we take a truly personalised approach to learning. Every day, everywhere, your child will reap the benefits of teaching, experiences, and activities that are tailored to their specific strengths, interests, and ambitions.

It all starts with our world-renowned National Curriculum of England, which our students follow from the Early Years Foundation Stage through to IGCSEs and A-levels. Our curriculum is enriched by an array of extraordinary learning opportunities, including exclusive collaborations with The Juilliard School, UNICEF, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

We carefully combine this British-international approach with our host country’s beliefs and traditions. Our Qatari nationals follow the Ministry of Education’s Arabic, Islamic Studies, and Qatari History programme, which is firmly embedded into our curriculum. And through targeted programmes, we ensure every child – regardless of their starting point – becomes a confident English language communicator.

Engaged, enthused, and learning in a way that’s right for them, our students earn outstanding individual success. In 2023, 100% of our A-level students achieved results that got them on to the pathway of their choice. Whether that’s studying neuroscience at Alberta University in Canada or being accepted into military school in Qatar, every NAISAK student is empowered to create their own bright future.

As you’d expect, we set the highest academic standards. We’re proud to hold Qatar National School Accreditation, meet Ministry of Education benchmarks, and be accredited by British Schools Overseas.

World's best teachers

Caring, compassionate, and committed to unlocking your child’s potential, our teachers are among the best in the world. They bring a wealth of qualifications and experience to our classrooms, as well as being experts in their subject field or age group specialism.

World's best teachers

Our world-class teachers understand there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to learning, and what will motivate your child may differ to their friends. That's why – from the early years through to sixth form – we treat every student as an individual, tailoring learning to their strengths and passions, and providing the personalised support they need to achieve great things.

At NAISAK, every member of our teaching team is carefully chosen; they hold recognised UK or international qualifications, and have an abundance of British curriculum experience. All our teachers meet Ministry of Education requirements, too.

Whatever their specialist subject, we see every member of our team as a teacher of English. Our expert educators model excellent English to ensure our students rapidly become fluent communicators, regardless of their starting point.

And our teaching standards are second to none, which is thanks to the breadth of training and development opportunities we offer. On the award-winning Nord Anglia University platform, for example, our teachers share ideas with colleagues worldwide, study for further qualifications, and access cutting-edge resources from world-leading organisations like MIT and The Juilliard School.

Our teachers love working here, too, and our retention rate is among the best in Qatar. This creates a tightknit community where staff are fully invested in each child’s learning journey, and provide a continuity of education. Our team’s commitment also reflects the strength of our culture, familial atmosphere, and community.

Advanced learning environments

Nestled away in the heart of Al Khor, our hidden gem of a campus is an oasis of inspiration. Here, traditional Arabic architecture combined with modern sports, arts, and STEAM spaces create an energising environment where every student thrives.

Close to the coast, we’re just 20 minutes from the thriving city of Lusail and 25 minutes from West Bay, Doha. We’re also the only international school in the northern communities of Qatar.

On campus, four shaded pitches, a sports hall, and gym give athletes of all abilities the chance to move, compete, and boost their physical and emotional wellbeing. We’re one of the only schools in the region with a covered outdoor swimming pool, too, which offers endless opportunities for fun and fitness.

STEAM specialists ignite imaginations in our science labs and classrooms, nurturing our students’ creativity and curiosity, and encouraging them to think ‘outside the box’. Your child will pursue their artistic passions in our soundproofed music suite and drama studio, too, becoming creative instrumentalists, performers, and actors.

Our students develop a lifelong love of reading in our early years, primary, and secondary libraries. And when it’s time to take a break, ingeniously designed pockets of plant-filled space – a rarity in Qatar – provide the calming atmosphere our students need to relax, recharge, and catch up with friends.

Exceptional learning experiences

Your child will love learning at our international school in Qatar, as they discover their strengths and immerse themselves in exceptional cultural, sporting, and creative opportunities.

Exclusive Nord Anglia Education collaborations with world leaders in the performing arts and STEAM engage, excite, and inspire. In partnership with The Juilliard School, we offer the highest quality drama, music, and dance education, preparing our students for the international stage. Our awe-inspiring STEAM programme with MIT, meanwhile, will open your child’s eyes to the marvels of science, technology, engineering, arts, and maths, encouraging teamwork, problem-solving, and critical thinking.

We also offer more than 40 extra-curricular clubs, which are designed around the interests of our students. These range from swimming and martial arts, to coding and painting. Partnerships with leading local organisations, including Qatari Museums, the Qatar Aspire Academy, and Doha Golf Club, enable us to offer one-of-a-kind cultural experiences, world-class coaching, and the chance to pursue passions.

On international adventures – ranging from our citizenship expedition to Tanzania to a personal challenge residential in Switzerland – your child will form lifelong friendships, grow in confidence, and develop a global perspective. Closer to home, our students make meaningful community connections by taking part in country-wide events. These include national art competitions, dance challenges, maths Olympiads, and the chance to represent our school at high profile occasions, including the 2022 World Cup.

In everything they do, we’ll make sure your child is safe, happy, and receives the best possible care. Driven by our whole-school Leader of Wellbeing, our highly qualified staff will provide the individualised support each student needs to bounce-back from adversity and look after their physical and mental health.

The NAISAK family

We’re incredibly proud of our multicultural community, which is enriched by Qatari traditions, heritage, and culture.

Together, we make the most of the incredible opportunities on offer in Qatar, building local partnerships that enhance the depth of our connection with this wonderful country.

NAISAK is a place where everyone belongs and every student flourishes. Your child will feel at home from the moment they set foot on our campus, where they’ll be supported to follow their passions and achieve more than they thought possible.

Being part of the Nord Anglia Education family means there are no borders to your child’s education.

 Our social purpose

In a diverse community that embraces internationalism and celebrates local culture, our students become confident global citizens, ready to change the world for the better.

 Our social purpose

At NAISAK, we’ll empower your child to develop a global perspective and encourage them to think about how they can make a positive contribution to our school, their community, and the world.

Globally, our students stand up for what they believe in and make their voices heard through our collaboration with UNICEF. Your child will explore pressing issues – including the UN Sustainable Development Goals and climate change – and take part in debates, challenges, and international trips, where they’ll share their ideas on the world stage. Getting involved in our debate club also encourages them to think and act like world-changers.

We encourage our older students to take part in The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award. Through this award, your child will set their own goals and challenges, and commit to making a difference in our community. They'll build their confidence and self-esteem, and learn essential skills for the future, including resilience, resourcefulness, and the ability to solve problems.

In school, our innovative student voice programme effects real change. From organising a whole-school wellbeing project to setting up an outdoor library, our secondary students have a lasting impact on how we do things – and become role models for their peers. Our young people also speak up on the topics that matter to them through our student podcast, confidently discussing themes ranging from equal rights to global warming.
